They act as a PA to the Artistic and Executive Directors – managing diaries, coordinating meetings, handling correspondence and arranging travel and accommodation as required – and are a central point of contact for the Board of Directors. The Executive Assistant has a key role in managing HR systems and processes of the organisation, maintaining strict confidentiality when handling sensitive material.

The Executive Assistant also supports the wider senior team as needed, coordinating company-wide meetings, away days and events, and works alongside other administrative staff across the organisation to ensure the effective administration of the organisations activities.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable insight and experience of the theatre industry in a regional producing theatre.  Experience of working in a theatre environment is not a requirement of the role; the role would be particularly suited to someone with administrative or PA experience who is interested in a career in theatre or arts management.
